PIP (FOW): Luchs attack

Luchs attack
 Some late war German recon tanks roll of the painting line.

The models are painted using AK interactive German late war colors with a scheme based of the AK interactive camouflage profile guide.
A couple of new things tries this time.
(1) Airbrush one camo color then dry brush the painted area with 50:50 mix of camo color + Vallejo airbrush white to provide a highlight to the camo color. Then mask and repeat. It was time consuming and I am not sure of the valued for the method.
(2) Varnish the model after applying decals and paints but before weathering. This worked I an think I will use it again.
(3) Adding MIG pigments to the tanks as part of the weathering. Unfortunately MiG's European dust pigment does not provide a great contrast to the German  Beige/yellow that covers most of the model. Still worth a try.

Overall I like the results and I am looking forward throwing the models down on the table at some point in the future.

That is all for now thanks for stopping by.
